Commenting on the fundraiser, Mateo Cavasotto, co-founder and CEO of Emi said, “Our mission is to increase frontline workers' access to professional opportunities. To accomplish this, we are creating the infrastructure for frontline hiring, providing companies with tools designed specifically for the challenges of hiring these workers, who account for 2.4B people across the globe, representing +70% of the global workforce. We founded this company while working closely with frontline candidates, so we know that technology needs to meet them where they are, not the other way around. At the same time, we work with large enterprises and also know that our platform needs to fit into their growing tech stacks."
